Mallets and Hammers for Woodworkers is a small selection of good quality tools designed for striking gouges and chisels without damaging them.
A mallet resembles a hammer, but the difference lies in its non-metallic head. We use mallets to strike a tool or job softly. The purpose of a mallet is to strike a blow but on soft material, taking care not to damage the job. Unlike the metallic head of hammers, mallets have heads made of various materials, depending on the purpose of each type.
